Re: Recovery Problem

  1. Check you are really using the right CDs
  2. Using another computer with a CD Writer and a blank CD, download this file:

Run the program, it will explain how to make a boot CD which you will use to start your computer and fix the problem that makes it say Wrong Machine.
Once this is done you can use the recovery cd's again.

Toshiba satellite pro m15 s405 video card replacement

Probably impossible. Most laptop graphics chips are soldered directly to the motherboard requiring a new motherboard if one dies, and very few are actual "cards." That being said, it looks like your's is a nVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go which might be a card. I'll do some research and find out.

Fan issue

Here is a disassembly guide for your laptop:

Not every screw is required to be removed to take out the keyboard but to replace a fan you most likely will have to since the machine needs to be entirely opened up.

Usb ports on a toshiba satellite pro m15-S405

You can if you have good soldering skills. The welds are located on the opposite side of the motherboard. Just go to or ebay to find a raw module to replace it. Otherwise you must replace the motherboard. Remember, heat the work not the solder, and use low watt if lots of smaller circuits are closeby.
